Animated Film Voice Rant

The accuracy with which I can decipher actors'voices in animated films is nothing less than extraordinary. Just uncovered Michael J. Fox, James Garner (aka The Rockford Files), the lady Bailiff who smokes from TV's "Night Court" and Father Guido Sarducci in a 1980s Disney version of "Atlantis" (Not even kidding here.) These are not parlor tricks, people. Seriously, I'm ready to go on the road with my talent. I identified the entire cast of "The Lego Movie" in under sixty seconds. And don't think I'm vulnerable with Golden Oldies like "The Aristocats" or "The Jungle Book" either. I owned the song "The Bear Necessities" on a 45 inch, Haters. I know Scatman Cruthers like I know Dick Cheney. I know many actors double and triple "dip" in the animated world like Ryan Reynolds and Will Ferrell. And then there's that darn postman from "Cheers" whose animated film royalties are the stuff of legend. He drives a fleet of Rolls Royces and word has it Kanye and Kim asked if they could borrow his "gold toilet seat guy." And I still think annoying humanitarian Matt Damon was robbed of an Oscar for portraying a horse named "Spirit" - a role that he (predictably) gave his fee to an American Indian charity(which they later used to buy chandaliers and a year commitment by Tony Orlando to headline at their casino.)
But the bottom line is: #PeterOTooleRatatouilleperformancebestactorvoiceoverofalltime
